Ryanair has ceased its services from City of Derry Airport until the end of March and further delayed the return of the majority of its services at Belfast International Airport, meaning that the airline will not operate any services out of or into Northern Ireland until late March at the earliest.
Last month, Ryanair stopped operating its route between Belfast International Airport and London Stansted Airport, and delayed the resumption of several other services from Belfast International Airport, meaning that it will also not operate at Belfast International Airport until the end of March.
As reported by The Irish News, Ryanair services from Derry to Liverpool and Edinburgh were due to resume this week, but the airline has now pushed the services' resumption date back to March 28 due to the impact of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.
